Atomic Blog 12/13 vs Line Sir Francis Bacon 11/12 vs K2 Hellbent 07/08
I am currently looking for a new allround ski that can ski it all.
Here are some facts:
- 6'1, 191 lbs.
- used to ski race FIS GS and SL and I ski powder and all kinds of terrain since I was 8 years old.
- I ski in the european Alps.
- I own a Hellbent from 07/08 in 179 (185) which I find a bit too big and far too heavy.
- I skied the Bacons last year and loved them, but right now they are out of my price range.
I am currently looking at the Atomic Blog which I could get for 419€ including Marker Griffons.
The ski seems about right for me, although I fear it might be too heavy. I really liked the weight of the Bacons which is about 2kg for a pair. Can anyone tell me how the Blog compares?
For anyone that owns one: Can you tell me how well he handles old and chopped snow as well as normal carving on the slopes. Is it possible to take a few runs in the park (norhing to crazy)?
I'd suggest http://gb.whitedotskis.com/preacher/ with a race background you could rip this anywhere. Camber throughout, lots of float and holds an edge on anything.
Holy Jibbin Jihad
Maybe the obsethed from last year, good amount of rocker in the tip and overall just a stiff, damp, bomber ski
